Picnics, Parks & Gardens in Budapest

Budapest is famous for its diverse landscape: not every capital has a river, islands, hills and lengthy flat terrain to call its own. It is this trait that makes Budapest an ideal city for picnics-in-the-park outings, regardless of being a Central European metropolis.

Our number one pick is Margaret Island along the inner city length of the River Danube, with countless green areas for relaxation alongside a rose garden, zoo and several playgrounds.

The Gellért Hill, Castle District and Normafa in the Buda Hills all provide the perfect scenario for picnics, hiking and relaxation after rigorous sightseeing in the congested Pest side.

The City park; largest park of the Pest side, Tabán; a former romantic cobble stoned district of the Buda side turned into a park after being demolished and the Liberty Square; a centrally located park just a few steps from the Parliament are all pleasant for short strolls.

Our next two picks are the Botanical Garden with local and exotic breeds and the Károlyi Garden, a well-kept park just off the Museum Ring Road.

Our last pick, the "bottomless lake" or Feneketlen Tó with its surrounding park and benches has a lovely atmosphere, a great place for a quick sit-down after wondering about in the area.
